Robberies and aggravated assaults are both up in the Mission District, while reports of rape are the lowest in at least five years, according to San Francisco police data.
By the end of August, reports of robberies increased by 41 percent in the Mission compared to the first eight months of 2012, and by 45 percent from 2010, according to the most recent police data. Aggravated assaults went up more incrementally, with an 11 percent increase from last year, and 29 percent from two years ago.
Incidents of rape dropped from 23 to eight since last year, a 65 percent decline, according to police data.
The adjacent charts give a closer look at the above data, which compares all violent crime in the Mission District over the past five years.
Note: As a result of San Francisco police changing the way they report data over the years, information in 2009, 2010 and 2011 includes crimes reported through the first few days of September.
